Minty

SHEER BIRD PRINT BLOUSE: RIVER ISLAND | SPIKE RING: ASOS |
CREAM JUMPER, PASTEL GREEN SKINNY JEANS, JEWELLERY & LEOPARD PRINT SHOES: TOPSHOP


Mint was predicted months and months ago to be one of this season's hottest colours, which it definitely is, so these jeans are actually a few months old (what can I say, I am like, totatally ahead of the times).  I don't wear them very often simply because it is a little tricky to decide which shoes to wear with them, mainly because 95% of my shoe collection are Converse in every colour but white, but I had a little light bulb moment when I remembered that I have these leopard print slippers.  It really bugs me when my outfits are TOO matchy-matchy so rather than wearing a white shoe I actually like how these look with the outfit much more.  I think my silver flatforms would have looked pretty amazing with this outfit, but alas they do not fit, so I have been banned from wearing them again.  I really want to buy them in a size up but ASOS haven't given out a discount code in ages when they used to offer a new one every week.  Typical.  I know if I give in and buy them for full price, though, that the next morning they will send out an email offering something like 50% off.  Well I am so not falling for it, not this time...
I am digging pastels this season so these jeans are perfect for not-so-hot summer days, and their relatively stretchy material makes them a lot comfier than some of the other jeans which I own, b-b-b-bonus.  I really like how they're high-waisted as well so I can tuck a top into them if I wish.  The bird print shirt is something which I bought late last year, I fell in love with the print straight away and is different to any other print which I have seen so I couldn't resist buying, and how glad I am that I didn't!
I have spent the whole day studying for my exam tomorrow morning, and I can safely say I have never been this unprepared for an exam EVER.  Am trying to stop myself from freaking out, but thankfully by this time tomorrow I will never have to do chemistry again!  Then one more exam on Monday morning and that's it!  FREEEE-DOMMMMM.  I miss doing the simple things like reading a book or watching television.  I have so many series waiting for me which I've recorded, I HAVE managed to keep up with Desperate Housewives though, except for the very last episode.  Am saving it for when I'm home alone and curled up with a pile of tissues.  I am such a girl sometimes...
